Day 12: Riley Eating Capelin ~ July 12th, 2009

Riley tried Capelin today. For those of you who don’t know, Capelin are a small fish in the smelt family. In Newfoundland in July, they move inshore by the millions to spawn on the beaches. For a couple weeks in July you can literally just stand on the beach and scoop them up in nets or buckets. Newfoundlanders usually eat them dried. Anyway…today my dad gave one to Riley…she made a face at first and then went right on back to stuffing them in her mouth. You are supposed to remove the heads but Jamie decided to be funny and EAT the heads…GROSS! Jamie calls them “fish jerky” (I guess because they are dried they remind him of eating beef jerky).
